Local Mission Project (LMP) was started in 2002 by FUMC Springdale and FUMC Searcy as a local alternative for missions. LMP is construction based and has provided hundreds of projects for those that cannot help themselves across greater Northwest Arkansas. Projects range from wheelchair ramps to painting projects to roof work; and have involved thousands of students over the past 12 years. In 2010 FUMC Rogers joined in the effort and will be celebrating our 5th year as part of LMP at this year's event June 22-27 in Springdale. Students are divided into teams of about 12 with 2 or more leaders and go out to their worksite each day. After work shifts are over students head back to FUMC Springdale for the night for worship, teaching and night activities that range from Movie night to bowling to theme parties. If your students 6-12 grade are interested please contact our Director of Student Ministries B. Edwards or if your business would like to sponsor a worksite this year please contact B at
